Recipe Of The Day: Green Beans w/ Roasted Corn & Onions

I've been getting more and more emails after we posted up the Recipe Of The Day: Vegan Chicken Scaloppini the other day for healthier and healthier side dishes to accompany these wonderful main entrees were making over here. This little side dish goes perfect with a burger, grilled or fried chicken and of course any other kind of protein you can sear off (Tuna and Salmon included.)
This time were going to give you a classic dish that brings earthy flavors to the forefront of your palate.

4 Cups          Green Beans (Trimmed)
2 Ears           Corn On The Cob (1 Yellow, 1 White)
2 TBS            Olive Oil
1                    Red Onion (Large, cut in 1/8-inch rounds)
2 TBS            Chopped Garlic
1/4 Cup        White Wine
2 tsp              Sea Salt
1 tsp              Black Pepper
1/2 tsp          Smoked Paprika
1 tsp              Seasoning Salt
3 TBS            Butter
1/4 cup         Roma Tomatoes (Small Diced)
3 TBS            Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese (Grated)
Water            Enough To Cover The Beans (Plus Extra For Ice Bath After Blanching)

In a medium sauce pot, bring water and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil.
Add green beans and blanch for 3 minutes.
Remove from water and put into an ice water bath. Drain immediately or beans will become soggy.
Heat grill or gas burners. Place cleaned corn on the cob on the grill or burner. Turn corn and lightly brown all the way around.
Let corn cool and slice the kernels off the cob.
In a large saute pan over medium heat add oil.
When the oil is hot add onions  and saute for 4 to 5 minutes.
Season the onions with paprika and seasoning salt and toss to coat.
Add green beans, corn, and garlic.
Saute for 4 minutes, deglaze with wine, season with salt & pepper and butter.
Garnish with Roma tomatoes and Parmesan.
